NY Gov. Cuomo Sexually Harassed Multiple Women In Violation Of State And Federal Law

No.901656 ViewReplyOriginalReport

>A new report from New York Attorney General Letitia James finds Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women.

>“The independent investigation has concluded Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, and in doing so violated federal and state law,” James said.

>The report finds the executive chamber was a hostile work environment and 11 allegations of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior leveled against the governor are credible.

>Investigators say that Cuomo engaged in “repeated physical violations” of women, groped an assistant, and allegedly had unwelcome contact with a female state trooper.

>Cuomo also repeatedly made “offensive and gender-based” comments to staffers and employees.

>James said the investigation has concluded, and the allegations are “civil in nature,” though prosecutors are welcome to review the report and make their own decisions about possible criminal charges.

>James said next steps are up to Cuomo, the Assembly, and the public – but the investigation into sexual harassment by the New York Attorney General’s office is over.

>“The report speaks for itself,” James said. “The governor violated state and federal laws.”

>As to the allegations from the 11 accusers against Cuomo, “I believe them,” James said.

>A separate investigation into the governor’s book deal remains open.
